“CLASSIC” MACARONI & CHEESE (adapted from the recipe by Chef John of Foodwishes.com)

[ 1lb elbow macaroni + 2 1/2 cups of grated sharp cheese of your choice (you can also use a combination of cheeses) + 1/4 cup butter + 1/4 cup flour + 3 cups cold milk + 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper + 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce + 1 teaspoon salt + a pinch of grated nutmeg + 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs + 1 tablespoon butter, melted + 1/3 to 1/2 cup of cheese of your choice (I’m using aged Mozarella because I like the stringy stuff) ]

Cook the pasta according to the instruction on the package. While you do that, make the sauce.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.

When you see that it’s starting to foam and bubble and hear it sizzle, add in the flour while whisking. Cook this on medium heat for about 3-4 minutes.

Then pour in the first cup of cold milk and whisk to prevent any lumps forming. Then add in the rest of the milk and let it simmer on medium heat. Add in the Worcestershire sauce, cayenne, salt and pepper to taste. Lower the heat to medium-low and simmer for 8 minutes while stirring often until it thickens.

Then turn off the heat and add in the grated cheese and stir until all of it has melted into the sauce.

Make sure the pasta is well drained before adding the cheese sauce. Stir or toss to coat and then put it in a casserole dish.

Put a layer of cheese on top.

Combine the panko with the melted butter and then sprinkle that on top of the cheese.

Bake it in a 400F oven until the top is browned and crispy.

Let cool for 3-5 mnutes and then serve.

Now if you don’t have an oven, then make this minute alteration to the recipe above.

STOVE TOP MACARONI & CHEESE (adapted from the recipe by Chef John of Foodwishes.com)

[ 1lb elbow macaroni + 2 1/2 cups of grated sharp cheese of your choice (you can also use a combination of cheeses) + 1/4 cup butter + 1/4 cup flour + 3 cups cold milk + 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper + 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce + 1 teaspoon salt + a pinch of grated nutmeg + 1/4 cup Potato chips, roughly crushed  (the flavour is up to you) + 1/4 cup regular bread crumbs + 1 tablespoon butter ]

Cook the macaroni & cheese in the same way as above, but instead of Panko breadcrumbs and cheese, take a skillet and heat the butter before adding the crushed potato chips and breadcrumbs. Sautee until crispy and use this as a topping instead.

Enjoy!
